Till hearts of stone begin to beat.

The triumphs of the cross record; < The name of Jesus glorify,

/ Till every kindred call him—Lord.

Prayer for the Heathen,

563

m 1 A'ER the realms of pagan darkness
mp V/ Let the eye of pity gaze;
— See the kindreds of the people,

mp Lost in sin's bewildering maze;—

p Darkness brooding

On the face of all the earth!

: mf 2 Light of them who sit in error!
: / • Kise and shine—thy blessings bring;
Light—to lighten all the G-entiles!
Eise with healing in thy wing:
To thy brightness,
Let all kings and nations come.

mf 3 Let the heathen, now adoring
Idol gods of wood and stone,
Come, and, worshiping before him,
Serve the living God alone:
I / Let thy glory

Fill the earth, as floods the sea.

4 Thou! to whom all power is given,
Speak the word; at thy command,
Let the company of heralds

Spread thy name from land to land: ; mp Lord! be with them, mf Always till time's latest end.

HYMN 564, L. HL.
Spread of the Gospel.

THY people, Lord! who trust thy word,
And wait the smilings of thy face,
Assemble round thy mercy seat,
And plead the promise of thy grace.

Hast thou not said—thine only Son
Shall be a light to Gentile lands, .

j To open the benighted eyes,

$ And loose the wretched pris'ners' bands ?—

I

j 3 From land to land, from sea to sea,

I That his dominion shall extend ?—

| . That every tongue shall call him Lord,

\ And every knee before him bend?

J 4 Now let the happy time appear—

| < The 'lime to favor Zion come;

5 / Send forth thy -heralds far and near,

\ > And call the wandering exiles home.

Zion wonders at the sight,—
Zion feels a strange delight.
